Expanded mesh

Expanded metal is a form of metal stock made by shearing a metal plate in a press, so that the metal stretches, leaving diamond-shaped voids surrounded by interlinked bars of the metal.

Expanded metal is used in:

  • Grates
  • Outdoor furniture (e.g. benches)
  • Fencing
  • Installation of "heating floor" system
  • Plastering



The Italfim STILTECH line offers a range of expanded metal mesh for architectural purposes such as facade cladding and suspended ceilings.

This modular design adds character and originality, by enhancing the natural local landscape as well as the urban or industrial setting.
